Design Transitions

During 2012, as design merges with other fields, I worked with two amazing people Joyce Yee, Lauren Tan to co-writing a book called Design Transitions. Finally I can announce ‘Design Transitions: Inspiring Stories. Global Viewpoints. How Design is Changing‘, is now out! Design Transitions presents 42 unique and insightful stories of how design is changing around the world. It has been co-authored by Dr. Joyce Yee, Dr. Emma Jefferies and Dr. Lauren Tan, forward by Tim Brown, IDEO’s CEO.
